Premier Foods today received notification from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) that investigations carried out to date at the company’s factory into the isolated incidence of botulism potentially linked to one jar of Loyd Grossman Korma sauce have not revealed any contamination. Further investigations into the source of the contamination are now focused on what happened to the product during transport, storage and use of the product after it left the company’s control.
The FSA confirmation follows reports that a third member of the family involved has now been hospitalised with suspected botulism.
Commenting on the new developments, Bob Spooner, Group Supply Chain Director, said:
“We remain very concerned for the family involved and very much hope the children recover fully.
“We are pleased that the FSA has found nothing, to date, to suggest that a problem occurred in our factory and we remain confident in the quality of our products and processes.
“The company will continue to assist the authorities in any way we can to help find the true cause of the contamination.”
